Zebra Technologies’ Eileen Eck Recognized as 2015 CRN Channel Chief

LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. – Feb. 23, 2015 – Zebra Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: ZBRA), a global leader in products and services that provide real-time visibility into organizations’ assets, people and transactions announced that Eileen Eck, vice president of global channel strategy, marketing and operations has been named to the prestigious list of the 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs. The influential executives on this annual list represent the most powerful leaders in the IT channel who hold direct responsibility for driving growth and revenue for their organizations through their indirect channel partners. Individuals are selected for inclusion based on their track record of channel accomplishments, standing in the industry, dedication to the partner community, and plans for driving future business innovation and channel growth.

The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs have demonstrated their enduring support for the channel by consistently defending, promoting and executing effective channel partner programs and strategies.

Following the acquisition of Motorola Solutions’ Enterprise business, Eileen Eck was instrumental in the integration and execution involved in maintaining business as usual so that partners were able to continue to operate in a flawless manner. The acquisition provides partners with a more complete offering to take to market and enables Zebra to purposefully participate in the Internet of Things (IoT) space as leaders in the high-growth enterprise asset intelligence (EAI) category.

“Each year, our editors carefully vet an extensive group of highly accomplished channel executives to highlight those exemplary individuals who earn the mantle of CRN Channel Chief. These executives strive to advance the success and standing of the channel community within their organizations. The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs lead by example and serve as valuable advocates to help ensure the health and longevity of the IT channel. We applaud their accomplishments and look forward to their continued success,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company.

“It is truly an honor to be recognized as a CRN Channel Chief,” said Eileen Eck, vice president of global channel strategy, marketing and operations. “This is an exciting time for Zebra and its channel partners as we look forward to establishing a new, joint partner program - based on best practices from both current programs and the industry - later this year to meet the needs of our customers and our partners.”

The 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs list is featured in the February 2015 issue of CRN, and online at www.CRN.com.
